Welcome to the 1st annual Lua Scripting Awards! This is the Awesome Addon thread, where you get to vote on your favorite addon of the year.
Any Facepunch member can vote, but I’m only going to count votes from users with over 100 posts and that were not registered within the two weeks.
Evolve is already a proven admin mod, proven by the fact it’s already running well on about 35 servers. It has extensive support for custom ranks, which can be modified to suit your needs in realtime. The menu design is a well balanced mix between ULX’ and ASSMod’s. It’s as compact as ASSMod’s, as feature-rich as ULX’ and works as smoothly as the well known iPhone menus. Unlike ASSMod, Evolve is very actively developed and any bugs are almost always fixed within 24 hours. There are over 50 plugins, which all have an actual use, unlike gimmicky commands like !gimp. Above all that, it comes with a sexy scoreboard which functions out of the box for Sandbox servers.
[li]PAC2 (CapsAdmin, Nevec)[/li]The Player Appearance Customiser is an addon that will let you attach props to yourself. It started out as hat maker, which would only let you have one prop attached per player. In PAC2 (2 remakes from hat maker) you can attach as many parts as your computer can handle and with these parts can attach effects, manipulate bones, make props animate, clip props and more. Some players make outfits that look like new player models while others just want to attach a tf2 hat onto their player model.

Firstly, it is a complete replacement that a server owner can put in instead of the SourceMod version, and it will continue as normal. Secondly, it is a tool developers can use to create in-game admin mods that completely integrate with SourceBans, allowing you to view bans in-game and use useful menus instead of the concommands.
With RagMorph can ragdollize certain body parts on your player model. You can also modify your ragmorph to carry a box, swing punches or put wings on the back to make the ragmorph fly. The possibilities are endless. RagMorph is excellent for making machinimas but it’s also fun to just screw around with.
ULX is the oldest lua-based administration mod released for Gmod, and it is the admin mod that almost every other admin mod has compared itself to or claimed to be better than. Not just an ordinary administration mod with kick/ban features, ULX contains many useful features to assist in administration and server management (reserved slots, detailed logs), or just fun punishments (blind, slap, maul). Combined with its module system and a supportive forum community of developers and ULX users, the possibilities of extensibility are virtually endless.
ULX SVN is constantly evolving to keep up with advancements in Garry’s Mod. XGUI, our new menu system in SVN allows for the dynamic configuration of almost every item held within the ULX environment, provides quick access to commands, and has active user, group, and team management-- all from within your favorite gamemode of choice. While XGUI aims to please the graphic oriented users, ULX’s core functionality still allows for complete configuration and administration of servers where admins prefer to use raw console access.
Mbilliards adds the ability to play billiard games, such as 8-Ball, 9-Ball, Rotation and Snooker. Creating a billiard game is easy and you can choose which gametype, table size, table color and much more. It can also easily be integrated with gamemodes.
P.S. I’m putting this up a bit early because I’ll be gone tomorrow.
